This is my entry for the Hot Mess contest hosted by [link]
Peacock: It represents my rather cocky side, the side of me that gets absolutely full of it when I get complimented and is highly affronted whenever I am offended, causing me to puff up my tail, or really buff up my verbal abuses, and get revenge; it also stands for my more outgoing side, that even though it rarely shines, when it does, it tries to shine brighter than the Northern Star, even if it does falter a bit.
Cat: This cat is a Russian blue that is heavily based off of my sister's cat, Kiko, because he and I both love our solitude, appreciate alone time, get annoyed when there are too many people around, and we both like to eat a lot; it also just stands for how I'm actually extremely shy and I can't get past that shyness very well to make new friends unless I have old ones close at hand; it also shows the logic I use to try and keep myself grounded when dealing with my other sides.
Snake: The snake represents every doubt and insecurity that I've ever had about myself, from the fact that I'm too socially awkward to how inferior I feel compared to my older siblings to the fact that I know I failed some test or another, and it's a small snake because the doubts and insecurities are small at first, but they keep whispering at me and eventually get bigger until I rein them in.
Fairphant: My made up elephant fairy, it represents all of the good things I've ever thought about myself and how my imagination runs completely wild, especially when I'm reading, but it's also what keeps the snake from getting too fat off my doubts.
Materials used: pencil, Pilot pen, Crayola colored pencils, Foohy colored pencils, Prismacolor rubber eraser, tortillion, and a pencil sharpener.
